After four days of thrilling action, the ePremier League Invitational tournament came to a close. Pro footballers have competed for their clubs to be crowned the best FIFA 20 player in the Premier League and help raise money for #PlayersTogether, with Wolves' Diogo Jota emerging victorious.

ePremier League Invitational Results: Jota defeats Alexander-Arnold in thrilling Final

A host of Premier League footballers represented their clubs on the virtual football field in the FIFA 20 ePremier League Invitational tournament.

The final was broadcast live on Sky Sports in the UK and online, with the prize pool for the tournament donated to the #PlayersTogether initiative to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

Raheem Sterling, Andre Gomes, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Diogo Jota were among the Premier League stars competing in the tournament, and it proved to be the latter pair who contested the Final after Jota eased past Burnley's Dwight McNeil in the semi-finals, while Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold produced a comeback from 2-0 down against Manchester City star Stirling to win 3-2.

Despite 29 goals between Jota and Alexander-Arnold in the earlier rounds, the Final was a tense, closely fought affair. Goalless after 90 minutes, the pair couldn't be separated by a 45-minute period of golden-goal extra time. It went to a second period, and a goal-line clearance and the woodwork kept Alexander-Arnold in the match.

Ultimately, tournament favourite Diogo Jota made his relentless pressure count, a perfect through-ball leading to a powerful shot past Alisson into the top corner to seal victory.

Despite some technical issues throughout, it was a fun tournament in the end and a great advert for Premier League football during the global lockdown.
